Safety in a laboratory is the most important consideration in everything that you will do. To help you to be familiar with the safety equipment in the room, find the following items:
For each of the items in the list describe the item’s location in the room. Sketch a map of the room and clearly show where each item is found. Finally, using one or two well-written sentences, describe a situation in which you would need to use the item. Again, this work is to be done within your lab notebook.
Once you have completed your scavenger hunt bring your work to your teacher to receive credit. The first four people who finish will receive a special prize!
